Editorial Reviews

Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl was released in conjunction with Bugs Bunny: Hare Extraordinaire, so it's not surprising the two collections share the same strengths and weaknesses. None of these shorts have been released on disc before, and Chuck Jones's "Daffy Dilly" (1948) is a welcome addition to any cartoon library. Daffy sets out to win the money a gloomy millionaire is offering to anyone who can make him laugh--and succeeds in spite of himself. But many of these cartoons are, simply, duds. "This Is a Life?" (1955), "People Are Bunny" (1959), and "Person to Bunny" (1960) spoof largely forgotten TV shows. How many viewers under 65 will recognize caricatures of Art Linkletter and Edward R. Murrow? The films pitting Daffy against Bugs play like weak remakes of Jones's "Rabbit Fire" trilogy or Friz Freleng's "Show Biz Bugs"--"Person to Bunny" even repeats some of Daffy's tap dance to "Jeepers Creepers" in "Show Biz." The very late "Suppressed Duck" (1965) is painfully unfunny. Once again, some of the films have been inexplicably cropped to simulate a widescreen format. As with Hare Extraordinaire, fans of Warner Bros. cartoons will find Frustrated Fowl a disappointing follow-up to the six Looney Tunes Golden Collections. (Unrated, suitable for ages 8 and older: cartoon violence, tobacco use, ethnic stereotypes) --Charles Solomon

Warner has done something here that they never did with the Golden Collection DVDs, they CROPPED the picture of the 1954+ cartoons to make them look widescreen. The animators at Warner Brothers NEVER animated for wide screen until the 1980 revival. This is evident in the first CROPPED cartoon DESIGN FOR LEAVING (1954), there are jokes missing because they are in the upper or lower portions of the picture which are not there now. Maybe they were shown at the theaters this way, but I want to see them the way the animators intended us to see them.

I have already contacted the powers that be at Warner Home Video to request a re-call and issue a proper un-cropped DVD of these classic cartoons.

This would have NEVER happened in the Golden Collection sets. Someone who does not know better must be in charge now!

"Frustrated Fowl" is the best way to describe this DVD! This will be the LAST Looney Tunes DVD that I buy if this is going to be the new standard. Keep the old un-cropped Laserdiscs, a TRAVESTY has been committed here!

1-800-553-6937 is the Warner Home Video customer service number.

****DAFFY DILLY information****

When Daffy Dilly was first released to theaters on October 30 1948, it was a two-strip CINECOLOR Nitrate film. One color was on each side of the print. On August 18 1956 Warner Brothers re-released the cartoon, re-mastered as a three-strip TECHNICOLOR Safety film (replacing the original titles & credits with the new 'Blue Ribbon' titles).

The original 2-strip Nitrate negatives were either lost or destroyed after this. BUT a Safety film 16mm archival CINECOLOR print has survived with all of the original titles & credits.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why doesn't Warner Bros want my money? August 18, 2010
The only reason that I will not be buying "Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl," and the only reason for my 1-star rating, is because someone at Warner Bros decided to use matting to cover up the tops and bottoms of most of the cartoons on this DVD.

For example, in the original version of "Design For Leaving," Elmer Fudd is shown sitting on a bus, and we can see his face through the bus's window. But on this DVD, we can only see his mouth and the bottom of his nose.

Warner Bros claims that their reason for doing this is because that's what the artists originally intended. I very much doubt this claim. Why would they draw Elmer's face if they never intended for anyone to be able to see it? Furthermore, none of the cartoons on the six Looney Tunes Golden Collections are matted, and no one ever complained about the fact that those cartoons weren't matted.

I bought all six Golden Collections. But I will not be buying "Frustrated Fowl."

I was really looking forward to this DVD, and the companion Bugs Bunny one. All new to DVD cartoons, remasterd, looking great, and furthering the goal of getting the complete LT/MM library in my collection.

But, there is a serious flaw with this, and the Bugs Bunny disc. The aspect ratio is screwed up. The first few cartoons are just find, presented in a proper "pillar box" format on a wide screen TV. But then, starting with Design for Leaving, the cartoons are suddenly full screen, cropping the top and bottom of the image. At first I thought I had a defective disc, but when both this and the Bugs disc showed the same problem, it suggested to me that WB has screwed up on the mastering of these discs. And yes, it is a formatting error with the disc. If you play the disc on an older 4:3 TV, the ones that are stretched on the wide screen sets are squished inward on the older style ones. This is really sad becuase these are excellent cartoons, but I refuse to pay good money for a defective product. I'll be returning my copies for a refund. :(

Be polite yet firm. Make sure to suggest the idea of a disc replacement program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cropping ruins toons August 17, 2010
Yeah, there are WB apologists out there who are just happy more Looney Tunes have been released on DVD. Yeah, there are some toon fans out there who say cropping does not bother them.

But cropping two-thirds of the cartoons on this set was a completely unnecessary thing to do. I really don't understand the mentality that was behind this decision. Just who is WB catering to by ruining these cartoons like this?

1.0 out of 5 stars A Great Disappointment August 21, 2010
I just excitedly put Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl into the DVD player, and I tell you I couldn't put into words how shocked and disappointed I was to find these classic cartoons had been fiddled with, at first I thought it must be a faulty copy that slipped through quality control, which is why I came on to amazon.com to check if there had been a recall put out, only to be even more horrified to read this is how the distributors intended the films to appear. Surely not?! I'm still confident this was due to an error made in the production of this first release and a recall will be soon be announced.
Anybody seeing these cartoons presented in this skewed edited fashion will give the viewer a false, unfair and misleading impression, and lack of enjoyment they would otherwise experience seeing these cartoons as originally produced, at the cinema or back on Saturday Morning TV. Do you self and your family a big favour and steer clear of this release until it has been recalled and the cartoons restored to their original classic stature allowing them to be fully enjoyed and appreciated the way their original writers, directors and animators intended them to be.
